Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2008
Cabin:

Embarkation was faster than a speeding bullet. It does help getting to port early before the buses coming from the airport. Stayed in Rome for a few days prior to sailing and shared a shuttle with the couple we were travelling with. Made life easy instead of carrying bags in the Termini Stazione in Roma and then in Civitavecchia. 140 euro plus tip for 4 people was well worth it and also used the same shuttle service for our transfer from the port to Fiucimino Airport. Our driver was able to drop us off at the ship. Not all shuttles have access, so make sure beforehand. Port shuttle bus is not the easiest to find on your own and carrying your bags from the train station would not be fun.

Ship's decor is shocking at first having been on 5 other cruises on Royal and Celebrity. Easy to get used to.

Balcony cabin on the 6th floor was more than adequate in size especially the bathroom which the wife liked.
